Mahendra Nagamootoo is one of the dynamic players of the West Indies Cricket team. After scoring 68 at Sydney in his second teat in 2000-01, the batting became easier to him than the legbreak bowling he was actually picked to do. His technique involves rolling the ball out from a chest-on action, without getting too much purchase on it. Although he achieved a rare deed by bowling Steve Waugh in that Sydney game, it came via a freak rebound from the leg-side rough. He is a free hitting left handed batsman who is looked upon as an outstanding fielder in a sluggish team.
